Heaven and Hell
To appreciate what you have is to be able to value it without clinging to it or pushing it away, and to make good use of it while you can. More fundamentally, it is to understand that there is nothing that you have to be, nothing that can't happen to you, and nothing that you can't lose. It is to let go, to accept, and to be thankful. It is to look upon the truth unwavering, and to act in full awareness of risk and reward. To have and value without appreciating is to warp and waste, to live a smaller, darker life, to only wonder what this light would have revealed, had it not been extinguished forever.
